I couldn't decide whether to add the subtitle or not, but I figure not everyone here has English as a first language, so they might not all be familiar with the expression. So there you have it: a bean counter is a slang (and humorously ridiculing) term for an accountant. I don't mind it - just don't call me boring... ;-)

I'll never call you boring! I think it was wise to add the subtitle - probably not every country calls accountants "bean counters" and (speaking from the voice of experience) DNMC votes & comments are not fun at all - especially when you completely meet the challenge. This shot is well done. Congratulations on top 20 and a new PB!

Very funny. I think the title would have worked better without stating the bleedin' obvious and spelling out the joke for everyone, though.

Nicely composed. Good use of light, colour and perspective. 8

L()L classic, I love it. I think maybe if the big pile in the forground was to the side more and not centered, it would have made for a much stronger composition.
